This was our first visit to Father Hennepin State Park, Wow, what a great camping area. The two campgrounds are quite different in character, the Lakeview Campground is very popular, open, airy and presents a wonderful view of the lake; the Maple Grove Campground is more "woodsy" with trails that wind through the trees and finally lead to the lake....

Wow, A great place to stay instead of Hunter Winfields. You don't get screwed on the Price and the Park Rangers are very friendly. It is a jewel in the crown of Mille Lacs.
